49ers' DeForest Buckner: Team exercises fifth-year option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers exercised the fifth-year option on Buckner's rookie contract Wednesday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The two sides could eventually agree to an extension this offseason, but Buckner is nonetheless under 49ers control for the next two seasons. After finishing third in sacks amongst all defensive lineman, he'll now get a proven sack artist in Dee Ford to help fortify San Francisco's pass rush in 2019 -- and it's possible the team could use its current control of Thursday's No. 2 overall pick to bring in another blue-chip talent like Nick Bosa or Quinnen Williams.

49ers' DeForest Buckner: Quiet finish to monster season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buckner had four tackles (three solo) in Sunday's 48-32 loss to the Rams.

Buckner was unable to record a sack for a third straight game, but that shouldn't take anything away from the tremendous improvement he showed overall. The 24-year-old finishes the 2018 season with 67 tackles and a career-high 12 sacks. Those pass-rush results are especially impressive coming from an interior lineman, finishing only behind Defensive Player of the Year candidate Aaron Donald (20.5 sacks) amongst defensive tackles. Buckner's ascension into IDP relevance this season should make him one of the few players at the position worth considering for fantasy.

49ers' DeForest Buckner: Adds another sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buckner had three solo tackles, a sack and a fumble recovery in Sunday's loss to the Bears.

Buckner didn't quite match his 11-tackle, two-sack performance of last week, but it was yet another productive outing for the defensive tackle. The 24-year-old has 63 total tackles and 12 sacks in his breakout season.

49ers' DeForest Buckner: Breakout season continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buckner recorded 11 tackles (seven solo) and two sacks in Sunday's 26-23 win over Seattle.

The Seahawks ran the ball 35 times, allowing Buckner to rack up the tackles to set a new high mark for the season. The 24-year-old added two more sacks, bringing his mark up to 11 on the campaign. Buckner has developed into one of the league's top defensive tackles, putting himself in the IDP conversation at a position that generally struggles to create consistent value. The lineman should be busy against another run-heavy team in Chicago on Sunday.

49ers' DeForest Buckner: Two more sacks in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buckner recorded seven tackles (three solo) and a pair of sacks in Sunday's 43-16 loss to Seattle.

Buckner continues to be a bright spot amongst an otherwise sorry San Francisco defensive unit. The 24-year-old has already matched his combined sack total of nine over the past two seasons, and he is blossoming into one of the league's top pass-rushing defensive tackles.
